NASA: LIQUID WATER FOUND ON MARS

Click to Visit CBS This MorningThis week NASA announced that it has discovered a source of free-flowing water on the surface of the planet Mars, a breakthrough finding that could forever change how human beings view our celestial neighbor. Famed physicist/futurist and CBS News science contributor, Dr. Michio Kaku told ‘CBS This Morning’ that, with this, NASA may have “hit the jackpot.”

Public fascination with Mars has increased ever since NASA launched its unmanned rover Curiosity, which continually sends back images of the Martian landscape. Once thought to be too hostile to support life, the discovery of liquid water alters our understanding not only of the origins of the red planet but in the future potential for an eventual human presence on Mars. “It changes everything,” said Kaku, “It means that this liquid water can be used for, perhaps, irrigation, drinking water, and even rocket fuel.” WATCH NOW!

KAKU ON PLUTO NEW HORIZONS SUCCESS

Click to Visit MSNBCOn the historic success of NASA‘s space mission to the Pluto System, the New Horizons space probe has started sending back the first-ever high resolution close-up images of the dwarf planet’s surface. The data is traveling across a staggering three billion miles of space — the same distance traveled by the probe on its trek to Pluto and beyond. Meanwhile, here on Earth, scientists are studying the data as it continues to stream in. Dr. Michio Kaku joins Ed Schultz of MSNBC’s ‘The Ed Show’ to discuss the scientific and historic significance of New Horizons revelations about Pluto. WATCH NOW!

    KAKU ON HAWKING: AN ‘EARTH 2’ SOLUTION

    Click to Visit MSNBCAt the recent BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Awards in London, England, cosmologist Stephen Hawking said, “The human failing I would most like to correct is ‘aggression.’ It may have had survival advantage in caveman days, to get more food, territory or partner with whom to reproduce, but now it threatens to destroy us all.” He warns that major nuclear war could be the end of civilization, possibly humankind.

    As both a physicist and an optimist, Dr. Michio Kaku sees the very same scenario as motivation for ingenuity and opportunity. Specifically, using science, technology, and strides in space exploration to strengthen humanity’s presence (and its chances) to survive and even prosper beyond our earthly limits, out in space — to become, as he puts it, a “2 Planet Species.”

    Dr. Kaku returns again on MSNBC’s ‘The Ed Show’ to discuss Hawking‘s remarks as he presents his own insights along with solutions that could be like an “insurance policy” for the human race. WATCH NOW!
